Titanium dioxide has attracted considerable interest as a prototypical semiconductor photocatalyst. However, because of the relative large bandgap energy, further application of TiO2 photocatalyst is limited by its inefficient solar energy conversion. Various attempts have been made to broaden the light absorption window of the TiO2, such as growth of(More)
In this paper, we study a numerical method for the computation and continuation of homoclinic and heteroclinic orbits based upon the arclength parameterization of the orbits. Unlike most other methods, this method utilizes the geometric structure of the homoclinic and heteroclinic orbits and does not require solving a boundary value problem on an innnite(More)
Social networks are fundamental mediums for diffusion of information and contagions appear at some node of the network and get propagated over the edges. Prior researches mainly focus on each contagion spreading independently, regardless of multiple contagions’ interactions as they propagate at the same time. In the real world, simultaneous news and events(More)
Much greater surface-to-volume ratio of hierarchical nanostructures renders them attract considerable interest as prototypical gas sensors. In this work, a novel resistive gas sensor based on TiO2/Ag0.35V2O5 branched nanoheterostructures is fabricated by a facile one-step synthetic process and the ethanol sensing performance of this device is characterized(More)
Background Endothelial cells are known to contribute to kidney fibrosis via endothelial-mesenchymal transition (EndoMT). Matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9) is known to be profibrotic. However, whether MMP-9 contributes to kidney fibrosis via EndoMT is unknown. Methods Primary mouse renal peritubular endothelial cells (MRPECs) were isolated and treated by(More)
ZnO/HfO2:Eu nanocables were prepared by radio frequency sputtering with electrospun ZnO nanofibers as cores. The well-crystallized ZnO/HfO2:Eu nanocables showed a uniform intact core–shell structure, which consisted of a hexagonal ZnO core and a monoclinic HfO2 shell. The photoluminescence properties of the samples were characterized. A white-light band(More)
Hierarchical nanostructures with much increased surface-to-volume ratio have been of significant interest for prototypical gas sensors. Herein we report a novel resistive gas sensor based on TiO2/V2O5 branched nanoheterostructures fabricated by a facile one-step synthetic process, in which well-matched energy levels induced by the formation of effective(More)
Mining maximal frequent itemsets has been widely concerned. However, mining data streams is more difficult than mining static databases because of the huge, high-speed and continuous characteristics of streaming data. This paper presents an algorithm, called IDSM-MFI. The algorithm uses a synopsis data structure to store the items of transactions embedded(More)
Electrospinning is a convenient and versatile method for fabricating different kinds of one-dimensional nanostructures such as nanofibres, nanotubes and nanobelts. Environmental parameters have a great influence on the electrospinning nanostructure. Here we report a new method to fabricate hafnium oxide (HfO(2)) nanobelts. HfO(2) nanobelts were prepared by(More)
